the country around. host: all right. we'll go on to massachusetts, maureen, independent line. good morning. caller: good morning, how are you? host: doing well. caller: good. i do have a comment. host: ok. caller: i follow this very closely, and i follow fox news very closely, as well as your station. i do feel very strongly that there needs to be a stimulus for the actual taxpayer. i think that if president obama would give money back to the taxpayer, you'll see the economy get back. host: what do you think that would do for democratic's prospects in november, if he were to put forth an idea that would go right to the individual, an economic idea? caller: i think it would help them, because i'm not going to vote democratic. even though i'm an independent, i will volt as republican. host: what about a payroll tax holiday. caller: no, i don't think so, because independent contractors, we don't get paid unless we sell. we cannot collect unemployment. he needs to put into this system a stimulus package for the taxpayer, and i mean money, i mean like $15,000 to $20,000 per taxpayer. he can do

brought us john boehner's family. maureen dowd wrote about her sister. >> she did, her sister peggy. she writes this, when peggy left barry, despite being a washington native, peggy believed the dazzling young newcomer, obama, could change washington. but she has lost a lot of faith now saying she might vote for mit romney over alabama in 2012. he hasn't saved the economy. now he's admitting he made very limettle congress. you can't for four years blame the person who used to be president. obama tries to compromise too much and doesn't look like a strong leader. i don't watch m anymore. i'm turned off by him. i think he's an elitist. he does what he wants and then he tells tous do other things. >> mike, that's just a shotgun blast of maureen dows -- >> i know peggy, yes, i do. she's on to something. >> she is? >> you hear these complaints from democrats as well as republicans. >> i think she's on to -- i think more and more people are feeling, deservedly or undeservedly, you're trying to tell us how to live, how to do a, b and c. and yet, listen, sounds like a cheap shot. your family wen

, at the present miss player maureen conley became the first woman to win all four major grand slam tournaments in the same year. conley was just 18 years old at the time. she started the season with a win at the australian open over julie sampson but in the next three tournament finals she faced the same opponent each time doris hart. that day at the u.s. open right here in new york, the quick footed conley made short work of her competition. in fact, little mo took the title in just 4 minutes. unfortunately a horse riding accident the following year cut her career short at just 19 years old. she never played professionally again. but a teenager took the tennis world by storm 57 years ago today.

is quoted in "the new york times" in maureen dowd's column about sarah palin, she should not run and she won't run. that's jimmy carter's belief. that's also my belief. >> willie, is she going to run? >> yeah. i think she can't resist. he also got buchanan to say something nice about jimmy carter. >> that was the report. >> i bring people together. i'm coming out of this ahmadinejad breakfast with mika and it occurs to us after getting the transcript e-mailed to us that ahmadinejad was saying nicer things about israel than you were saying about jimmy carter. two hours after we're teaching about keeping calm that even pat buchanan felt sorry for jimmy carter and had to defend him. you're like karzai. you're on your meds, you're off your meds. >> i love you. i hate you. >> boy, that sounds familiar. norah o'donnell, you have done extensive reporting on sarah palin. it certainly looked like a political campaign ad to all of us. what about you? >> i think she'll run. i don't know that she can win, but i think what's clear in this is that if she does run, she will run as part of the tea party, no
